Set in a Gold-Rush era mining town, Boom Town features world-class circus stars in an evening full of lore, excitement and wonders of the Old West. Be transported to the 1860's small frontier town of Rosebud, where two ambitious saloon owners have set up shop in the hopes of cashing in on the town's gold rush frenzy. The circus that ensues when they begin to feud for the townsfolk's patronage leads to a series of explosive events, exciting brawls, an unexpected romance, and a lucrative discovery.

 

 

Once again, as with their previous productions, Cirque Mechanics explores the relationship between humans and machines. Inspired by early mining equipment and the spirit of adventure that brought prospectors and entrepreneurs alike out West searching for gold, Boom Town features innovative and one-of-a-kind mechanical apparatus that serves both as scenery and performance prop. You will find performers climbing up swaying telegraph poles, dancing on a swinging chandelier, flying high and fast on a revolving crane, flipping and jumping on moving ore carts, and balancing on whiskey jugs.
